About This Product

Cryptocoryne wendtii "Red" is a beautiful reddish brown variety of Cryptocoryne wendtii. It is a mistake to believe that Cryptocorynes require soft water. In large parts of Sri Lanka the water is hard, so Sri Lanka Cryptocorynes are almost all suitable for hard water. If the plant is affected by the so called "cryptocoryne disease", do not remove it from the aquarium because a few weeks later it will produce new shoots. See other Cryptocorynes for further information.

    great compact foreground plant

    Posted by Unknown on Feb 13th 2009

    I have had this plant ~1 month and it has already had a lot of new growth. My plant is ~3 inches tall x 3 inches wide. The steams are a reddish-brown and the leaves are a shiny dark green-brown. I have it growing at the base of some driftwood where it is a bit shaded, but the plant doesn't seem to mind. Overall a good buy for the money.
